All Blacks great, Dan Carter's magic left foot set up Robbie Keane goal in a celebrity charity football match at Old Trafford this morning.

Carter played for a Rest of the World XI against England in the 2018 Soccer Aid match and proved his left foot can still produce magic.

England were leading 2‑0 in the first half when Carter was out wide on the left and he precisely picked out Ireland's record goal scorer Robbie Keane, who took a heavy touch but managed to scramble the ball home.

Carter's team was captained by Jamaican sprinting legend Usain Bolt and featured the likes of former Manchester City star Yaya Toure, celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, ex‑England cricketer Kevin Pietersen, and they were partly managed by French football legend Eric Cantona and Harry Redknapp.

England later won on penalties after the match finished 3‑3 and Carter faced an English side captained by singer Robbie Williams, who is performing at the FIFA World Cup's opening ceremony, that boasted former internationals like Michael Owen, Phil Neville, David Seaman and Wes Brown, as well as running great Mo Farah and ex‑England cricket all‑rounder Andrew Flintoff.

Carter rubbed shoulders with some of football's biggest names in the week of training for the match, including Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and Dutch greats Clarence Seedorf, Edwin van der Sar, and Patrick Kluivert.

Meanwhile, the FIFA World Cup kicks off at 3am this Friday with the Russia and Saudi Arabia match.
